Arsenal target set for new Napoli contract offer

Published Add your comment

Arsenal target Juan Camilo Zuniga will be offered a new long-term contract by Napoli, as the Serie 'A' club attempt to ward off interest in the player's signature, reports talkSPORT.

The Colombia international was heavily linked with a move away from Stadio San Paolo this summer, and has now entered the final 12 months of his current deal.

Rafa Benitez has made it his priority to resolve the 27-year-old defender's future, and is ready to put a four-year contract ultimatum, with wages of around £60,000-a-week on the table, to convince Zuniga to remain in Italy.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing the versatile South American stopper to the Emirates Stadium, as he looks to further strengthen his squad in north London.

Zuniga's ability to play in either full-back position, as well as midfield, are attractive attributes that would benefit a relatively thin Arsenal side, that has already been affected by a growing injury list this season.

The frugal Frenchman has been monitoring Zuniga's contract situation at Napoli for some time, according to the player's agent, and failure to agree a new deal could prompt Wenger into action when the transfer window reopens in January.
